John Mayer Blogs Out, Goes Green

7/7/2007 3:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ever wonder what's going on in John Mayer's big ol' head? As a part of the Live Earth "concert series for a climate in crisis," Mayer's been blogging his thoughts on climate change. Climb right into Mayer's large cranium!

Here's what
Mayer wrote about the event a couple of days ago:

"I hope that for all the cynicism that's existed around this subject, we can all uncross our arms long enough to give this event a chance to impact the world in the way that I'm beginning to feel that it could. Now isn't the time to dissect the rights and wrongs. (If you're hoping Live Earth doesn't work, you have a lot of soul-searching to do.)


With this kind of lineup, there's no cause or crisis that wouldn't be positively affected by an event of this scope. Live Earth isn't a show - it's a showing, a presentation of an idea. Artists like us don't just get together to each play 20 minute sets every weekend, you know. We're also usually pretty sensitive about the order in which we take the stage, and I've got no problems with my 5:12 PM set time. The Police, Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, and yes, myself and my dumb face are all openers for the true headliner - the power to literally change the world's mind."


So inspirational! Wonder what ex Jess thinks about Mayer's do-good-ing green scene.

Dear John Mayer,

It's a concert. Not the second coming of Christ.

At best, some people will go, and enjoy themselves. That's about it.

Get over yourself, you narcissistic prick.

Sincerely,

Queen Elizabeth

Mayer is always trying to appear highly intelligent, ironic and humorous in his blog when in reality, he's merely average in intelligence and has a HUGE ego. He's the worst kind of dumbass because he thinks he's witty when he's not.

What a pompous a$$. He actually admits that celebrities like himself are BIG enough to put their semi-truck sized egos aside for 10 minutues to educate all of us stupid fools about global climate change by holding a MASSIVE waste producing party? Did he only make it through the 8th grade? Call me cynic who refuses to uncross her arms, but I fail to see how a huge hollywood production like this "raises" awareness to a crowd that already buys into the hype? It's just another example of Hollywood's excessive consumerism. It's not like this concert is targeted toward the poor urban masses or third world where environmental education is needed -- it's targeted towards rich first worldies who'll go spend their cash on tickets and "eco-friendly" goodies from all the vendors. Fools like Mayer could actually do their part by simply shutting off all the hot air coming out of their fat mouths.

i know one thing for certain, it's starting to make people sick having these entertainers all of the sudden becoming self annointed " important voices " on the issues of our times.

He ended his blog with..."[we musicians] deal with hope everyday." Yeah...hope that all us stupid sloggies will buy his albums and make him richer. Hope that he'll sell enough overpriced tickets to keep his name on the top of Hyde and Teddy's VIP list for awhile longer. Hope that people won't actually discover he's a retarded 12 year old.

How can anyone actually be that pretentious?

I think something Dane Cook once said applies to a lot of the comments; "No matter what you put out there, negative people try to snatch it away". Keep doing what your doing John, you are unique and no one does it as well as you.

What is wrong with you nay-sayers? Enjoy the music and think of what things you might do to save our environment. Too much negative energy going on. Try to be happy and do your part so that our world is a clean and safe place for future generations.
